Forum: opensource_audio Subject: MD to Computer Help

I've recorded some live shows off the sound board to my MD player. How can I dump these to my computer to convert to a wave file? I have a PC link for my MD but it appears to only work going computer to MD. Any help? Cheers.

You'll need to get a mini-to-mini (headphone jack on both ends) cable that connects the MD to your computer's sound card. The connections for your soundcard are probably in the back of your computer, there should be three holes. Plug the mini-cable into the line-in, its the one with the arrow pointing into a circle, not the one with the microphone. Plug the other end into your MD, you may have a line-out jack or maybe you'll have to use the headphone jack.

That will take care of the physical end of things, next you'll need some software. Popular PC programs are Soundforge and Cooledit. Audacity is an open source program that's pretty good, though not quite as good as the others I mentioned.

You may want to check out the BBC's audio editing guide, its pretty good.
